I need some help, please. I am a couple of weeks from harvest and I have thrips! creepy little fuckers!

I have read what Macky has posted here about them. Since I am in flower I should be buying ladybugs and then washing my weed before drying my harvest to get the bug poop off?
How many ladybugs do I need for a 4x2 tent full of plants?
I have been unable to find a source for ladybugs yet. πŸ™Β  Any ideas? I am in southern Ontario Canada.

Can I use nematodes while in flower? I don't see why not, they are a living organic and go in the soil to kill larvae. I have lots of yellow sticky traps out now as well.

Am I correct that they just use the plant to feed on the leaves until they reach adulthood and can fly around and make babies? So they do not attack or enter the buds?
